The Pittsburgh Steelers will travel to Indianapolis to take on the Colts on Saturday, kicking off at 4:30 p.m. ET, each looking to separate themselves from the pack in a tight playoff race. The Steelers and Colts are two of six teams in the AFC currently sitting at 7-6, while the Browns (8-5) hold the top wild-card spot in the conference.
The Steelers will be happy to have two key defenders in line to play this week, as linebacker Alex Highsmith and T.J. Watt were cleared from the concussion protocol. They’ll be without starting quarterback Kenny Pickett, however, as he continues his recovery from an ankle injury, putting Mitch Trubisky in to start his second straight game.
Colts running back Jonathan Taylor will miss this contest due to a thumb injury. This will be another missed game for the star running back who has not played since November 26th against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, with backup Zack Moss set to get his third consecutive start in his place.
The Steelers currently sit in the 6th spot in the AFC hierarchy, one spot lower than they began before disappointing losses to the Cardinals and Patriots in their past two games. And if they can figure out how to solve a couple of the issues that led to those losses, they still have time to make a strong push toward the postseason in their final four games.
